FR JERRY CAREY – KILLALOE PARISH PRIEST CAUGHT MASTURBATING IN HIS CAR ON GALWAY BEACH.

Priest caught masturbating at Blackrock gets suspended sentence

By BRIAN KELLY GALWAY DAIKY.

 March 2, 2021

A priest caught masturbating in his car at Blackrock in Salthill received a one month suspended sentence at Galway District Court.


Jerry Carey (60), with an address in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary, pleaded guilty to intentionally engaging in offensive conduct of a sexual nature.

The court heard that on August 3 of last year, Gardaí received a report of a man masturbating at Blackrock, where Mr Carey was caught in his car.

Blackrock Beach


Mr Carey’s solicitor said that his client was “shocked and remorseful” at his own behaviour, and felt deeply ashamed. That day he had come up to visit Galway

He stepped aside from his professional duties as a priest immediately afterwards, and had been dreading this day for the six months the solicitor added.

At the time he was under a lot of stress due to recent health issues, the court heard. He had no previous criminal convictions, and had never come to Garda attention.

Judge Mary Fahy said that Blackrock is a public area, where families go to swim and relax by the beach, and that this type of behaviour is “highly upsetting” for people to see in public.

She accepted that he was in his own car, but added that he could clearly be seen, as someone reported him to the police.

Judge Fahy sentenced Mr Carey to one month in prison, and suspended the sentence for a year, on the condition that he stay away from the area of the offence.

The court granted leave to appeal the sentence, with recognisance fixed at €200 of his own bond.

KNIGHT MONAHAN

CHAPLAIN

Fr. Jerry Carey is our school chaplain. Fr. Jerry can be seen (and heard) in the Leaving Cert area each day at breaktime. He is a familiar face in our school community and is called upon in times of joy and sadness. He works closely with the pastoral care team in the school.

Together with members of the teaching staff he accompanies our school tour abroad each year. Mission week and in particular the Buzz Club couldn’t take place without him. Through his work and contact with the school Fr. Jerry endeavours to create links with the local parish and school.

Enormous credit is due to Fr. Jerry for our new prayer room. This is viewed as a little oasis of calm within the school where individuals or groups can find peace and calm to reflect and pray in moments of necessity. Here too we mark different seasons of the year – November remembrance month, Advent and Lent. Mass is celebrated here each morning before the state exams.

Fr. Jerry also organises the annual youth pilgrimage to Taize, France in July. The pilgrimage is supported by many of our past pupils.

Every effort is made to provide students with a relevant, challenging and thorough religious education. Retreats, Liturgies and Prayer Services are central to school life. We are fortunate in having a dedicated team of Religion teachers who work with our school chaplain to make all this happen.

BISHOP FINAN MONAHAN – NO ACTION

In spite of Father Carey’s beach masturbation the Bishop of Killaloe, Fintan Monahan, still has the priest listed as a Co Parish Priest in the Ennis area and STILL as chaplain to the large girl’s school in Ennis Colaiste Mhuire!

FINTAN MONAHAN WITH UNDER INVESTIGATION RICHARD PURCELL.

Father Carey brings 50 + girls on holiday every year to Taize in France.

Here, below, in Monahan praising the trips.

PAT SAYS:

This incident is a personal tragedy for Father Carey, to which he greatky contributed.

It is also a shock for his parishioners and for the staff and students of Colaiste Mhuire in Ennis.

Father Carey has, obviously, seriously unresolved psychosexual issues.

However, it has serious reprecussions for his priesthood.

The word among the Killaloe clergy is that Monahan was hooibgbit woukd not get into the public areba.

Monahan is now hoping he will simply retire to his native Birr in Co. Offaly.

He cannot serve in a parish again.

He cannot be a school chaplain and bring groups of girls on holiday.

FINTAN MONAHAN was hoping that this would not come into the public arena.

Father Carey attended Galway court as MR. CAREY.

Why did Fintan Monahan not visit Father Carey’s parish and tell the people what was happening?

Did Monahan inform the Colaiste Mhuire principal of the what had happened?

Is Monahan one of the old fashioned cover uppers?

A Killaloe priest told the blog last night:

“Lugs is on dangerous ground. Vos Estis Lux Mundi has a process for bishops who mishandled allegations”.

SERIOUS QUESTION?

Has Fintan Monahan and/or his predecessors O’Reilly and Walsh, received any historical complaints against Father Carey from Ennis residents now resident in the UK?

This is a serious question?

Carey engaged in very high risk CRIMINAL behaviour. He knew that he could be seen; this was obviously part of the thrill for him. This is what turned him on.
I don’t doubt that he has done this before. Near the schoolgirls to whom he is chaplain?
If I were the parent of a girl at the school to which Carey is chaplain, I would insist that this pervert (There really is no other word for him.) have absolutely nothing to do with any student there. Apart from anything else, Carey is now a laughing stock at the school. Can you imagine the jokes that are circulating about him there?

Child abusing clergy, bareback riding Abbots, layby, toilet and al fresco cruising priests, cross dressing traddies, and now beach masturbating school chaplains……
You know, if I were a Bishop, I would be asking myself: “What is it about my clergy that sees them acting out these behaviours”. It happens too often to clergy for this question to be avoided. Yes, I know it happens amongst other sections of the population, but the clergy are a group that insist on telling us that they are called to a higher vocation and that they have some sort of sacramental grace and ontological difference by virtue of ordination. So, why do they get up to this malarky ?
I think it is clear to many of us, following the insights we have been given over the last few decades in to the training, background, behaviours and culture of the clergy, that there is something seriously amiss and adrift about this group of people. it is clear that there is a deep dysfunction at the emotional and psycho-sexual level, which has much to do with the clerical and insitutionalised culture in which they have been trained and live. There is a clear anomaly at work here.
So, dear Bishops, please ask yourself these questions and don’t be afraid to come up with some pretty radical solutions. As a starter for one, except for those who are clearly called to a life of celibacy (and there will be very few of those), stop shoehorning everybody who feels they are called to priesthood in to mandatory celibacy and let these men live lives that are emotionally, psychologically, affectively and sexually healthy. I guarantee that will solve a huge part of the problems that come across your desk, because your priests will be happier, more settled and healthier as a result of a settled and loving home life, as well as being more aligned to the realities of life as lived by the vast majority of us. I could go on, and talk about a root and branch review of the theology behind priesthood which underpins a rotten clerical culture; I could talk about a wider rethink and appreciation of the gift of sexuality in all its manifestations and orientations; I could talk about a new understanding of gender and the gifts that women bring to the Church and would bring to priesthood and ministry…..
However, for now, I would be content with the first matter – mandatory celibacy. You would very quickly find that you won’t be having to deal with – well, you know the list …..child abusing clergy, bareback riding Abbots, layby, toilet and al fresco crusing priests, cross dressing traddies, and even beach masturbating school chaplains…… Surely, you would like that ?!

@8:55 – Yes,, I agree that there is a serious debate to be had, and I wish it would take place. Instead, we just get stonewalling from bishops saying that none of those matters you mention are up for discussion, and the mind of the Church is already settled on them. In spite of the fact, as you have outlined, these issues are clearly implicit in the dysfunctional behaviour of so many clergy. We have somehow to get out this impasse. It will take some courageous bishops and clergy to take a stand and say that they are going to discuss it. One of the problems is that they have no protections if they decide to do that. The Church hierarchy and the Vatican have absolute power, authority and control, and these people would inevitably lose their jobs and livelihoods under the current system of patronage. They would have no protection under State law. However, as you have said, the debate needs to take place. Otherwise we are going to continue with a clergy whose feet are made very much of clay, and who put their feet in to trouble too often in serious ways, which is not good for them, for the Church, for the priesthood, or for us.

On a personal level I feel some sympathy and compassion for this priest. He has made a mistake, and he will pay a heavy personal cost. I hope that he is able to find some peace at the end of all of this. There is evidently something amiss with him and his psycho-sexual-social being, and he will need to work on that to try and address the issues that have led him in to this behaviour, which evidently is an indication of something not right at the heart of his very sense of self and being. It’s not just a question of having a wank. This acting out in public and very carelessly, is a sign of something not right with him. It needs addressing, and even if it means that he lays down ministry and find another way of living, so be it, as long as he is integrated, settled and at peace with himself at the end of it all.

Are you stupid? Carey, in full public view, wanks right near a beach, and yet, you discount even the possibility that children were around? You are the one that needs to grow up.

Carey was unconcerned about the nature of his audience, so long as he had one; this was his fetish. This is what got him going.

There is no way that Carey could have known that children would not be present, or that they would not appear on the scene at some point of his onanism. His perversion was executed in a public place, near a beach, where not just adults but children too were likely to be around. Fact is Carey didn’t give the proverbial; public self-pleasuring was all that mattered to this priest-pervert.

Therefore childsafeguarding most certainly IS an issue here, whether or not the court acknowledged it.

In Confession I confessed to masturbating and the priest (up until then hadn’t seem interested in my other sins) wanted to know frequency, where I masturbated and what my fantasies were – I am a male hairdresser and I think he thought (hoped) I was gay – I am effeminate but I am a straight man – I’ve often thought was his hitting on me or grooming me in some way.
Another priest I confessed masturbating to got really annoyed with me and said: ‘Are you still behaving in such an immature way – when will you grow up?’ He was really harsh and cruel as if masturbating was a heinous crime and less a human weakness.
Both these times me feel very uncomfortable and I have never spoke about this and I have never returned to confession.

Masturbating is an entirely natural release of sexual tension from the, again entirely natural, build up of sperm in a healthy male. Absolutely nothing to be concerned about from a physical perspective. In a similar way when done in private or with a consenting partner of either sex, psychologically/emotionally again it is entirely normal. However excessive masturbation may become harmfully addictive, though the threshold for considering it excessive or addictive will vary both for individuals, and at various stages of life, usually decreasing with age.
The kernal of considering the matter as a “problem”, morally or religiously, lies with an entirely misplaced clerical preoccupation of defining it as sinful. This seems based on ancient biblical texts of dubious origins and validity on which clerics and their hierarchy/institution have placed excessive and inappropriate focus. This preoccupation is most likely linked to their own unnatural supposedly chaste existence creating a maelstrom of suppressed sexuality they struggle with. Their training and subsequent lifestyle suppresses any growth in understanding of normal sexual expression.
This is the background to the completely inappropriate experiences in confession you referred to. Ignore them, and just don’t mention masturbation in confession. Would you ask a plumber for advice on your sprained ankle?

Thank you Fr JohnJoe – I wished I had gone to confession to you all those many years ago – thing is though – what frequency of masturbation is addictive and who decides?
Are priests trained in psycho-sexual counselling. Is there a norm and a spectrum – and if masturbation fell into a diagnosis of ‘addictive’ would that be so terrible – after all we binge on Netflix, crisps, sweets, why not masturbation?
What if, the Catholic Church, simply got it wrong on masturbation being sinful, rather like they got they got astronomy – the earth wasn’t the centre of the universe and just like masturbation isn’t the crime so many clergy (except you, thank God) think it is !! Hey they dropped Limbo with no explanation – perhaps they will drop masturbation – especially as the greatest wankers appear to be priests!!!!

I’m not Fr Johnjoe, I am however a mental health professional and am weighing in on the addictiveness question.
The general signs of addiction are here:https://www.healthline.com/health/addiction/recognizing-addiction
In masturbation terms there would be a difference between intentionally setting out to have an evening masturbating, because that is exactly like the other examples you give of binge watching TV shows etc, and addictive masturbation. The difference would be the effect it has on your life and whether you feel controlled by it.
For example, would you like to have a relationship but can only engage in masturbation as a sexual practice? Do you find you are masturbating when you really should be doing other things?
The classic difference would be in whether you or the substance/masturbation is in control of this.
There is also the question of how much it distresses you and disables the rest of your life.
Also if you stop doing it, how do you feel? If you are really not ok you might be addicted.

Jesus did not found a priesthood; some of his followers did.

Jesus did not prescribe celibacy; some of his followers did.

And so predictably on.

When will Catholics awaken to the historical fact that God, very often in Church history, does not feature in the decisions and choices of his church, anymore than he featured in the decisions and choices of those who wrote Scripture.

The hand of man (literally MAN) is behind much of what we assume is divinely ordained; this includes priesthood.

Priesthood historically is a curse on this church. Its ministers are incapable of living up to their own exacting moral stsndards, so they are constrained to lie, to cover up, to obfuscate in order to conceal the truth about themselves; but the truth usually outs in the end.

Forget about tinkering with celibacy, or anything else, as an antidote to the growing and public moral failings of Roman Catholic priesthood; priesthood is not divinely ordained.

None of us would want the public humiliation of this associated with our name. However, it is difficult to feel sorry for Fr. Carey because he was acting in a way that was so utterly stupid and reckless. And he proffers the incredulous suggestion that the antecedents of his behaviour was due to some health issue. Does he think we are stupid? If he was feeling stressed, he should have looked at some porn in the privacy of the Presbytery, and sought relief in that manner. But he could also have sought advice from his spiritual director/confessor. If Fr. Carey was a faith-filled individual the latter would have been the sensible thing to do…

I am not a psychotherapist, but I feel, this is not the first time that Carey has indulged in this pattern of behaviour. One does not start “banging the bishop” in public at his age. It evidences an ingrained systemic behavioural pattern.

@12.55 In England and Wales, for a first offence, he probably would have received a fine and some form of community service order. If there were aggravating factors, he might be required to sign the sex offenders’ register.

According to the news report the criminal act occurred on August 3, 2020. If that is the case, this has been known about for about 5 months. Is anybody in a position to confirm did Fr. Carey continue to minister in the Diocese of Killaloe. Did he have his faculty suspended? Did he continue to function as a school chaplain? Was he involved in youth ministry?

If he was not removed from ministry, then there are serious questions for Lugs Monaghan. For how long was he aware of this behaviour? Why was there no statement on the diocesan website? Did Monaghan knowingly and actively participate in a cover-up? This is the same diocese where the behaviour of Richard Purcell was an open secret, so I would not be surprised if MORE dark secrets from Killaloe emerge, soon.

If a cover-up can be shown the priests of the Archdiocese of Tuam will be overjoyed, because it will kill any chance of “Lugs” translating to Tuam. AMEN.

And then was he still at it when the police arrived? Seems to me there is more to this than a casual moment of madness? Was he for example “well-known” on the beach? If it really was a one-off he was damned unlucky, poor sod.

Such daring exhibitionism, on a public beach, is unlikely to have been a one-off. In all probability, it was the latest in an escalating succession of such events.
How did that woman know? Presumably she knows what a penis looks like, and what is happening when owner of said member has at least one hand to the, erm, pump.😕

I see the Bishop of Killaloe has issued a statement, usual drivel and not at all helpful. Killaloe seems to be the gay clergy diocese of Ireland and never off this blog, if its not a bareback riding Abbot and crew, it’s a wanking in public priest and God only knows what the rest are up to. There is no such thing as coincidence, a pattern is emerging.

If Fr Carey’s peccadillo was (is) exhibitionism and outraging public decency then it was only a matter of time that he got ‘caught’ – he wasn’t unlucky justice was served and justice is a bitch – money on his brother priests knew all about his penchant – it’s morally and ethically bankrupt to suggest he was unlucky to get caught – was Joe Quigley and Bede Walsh unlucky to?

I believe one of the times Bede Walsh got caught was because he was looking at child porn on a train. These people either think they’re invincible or do want to get caught.

If so it is more likely behaviour which indicates the strength of an addictive compulsion.

All the faux outrage by men on here about wanking in public or not, you really do have to laugh. Get a feckin life the whole lot of you.

Unlike you she is not obsessed with sex. It is a nice newsletter/blog to read. No filth, no innuendos.
She does tell it straight. And like myself, she will stand up for what she believes. No double standards.
Unfortunately, I have never met the good lady.

I always gave you the greatest respect thinking that you were well clued up and you disappoint me.
Patricia from CTS is not like you (hopefully) as she does not tell it straight Patricia says it from her own view’s and the other Latin brigade folk as they think they are the Church.
The team at Clyde St has investigated her reports and really some are simply not true.
She like some of them certainly do have double standards and Patricia goes around all the Latin brigade Chapels, one they own and the others take place in the Archdioceses Chapels.
You never know if + Keenan comes to Glasgow then he will throw the doors wide open as he loves publicity.

She is clearly gay herself
and should celebrate it. Member of the Catholic Purity League I suspect. She would love to have meat and 2 veg so she could be a Priest. She’s very articulate. +Pat – would
You consider her for the oratory society? I know you like
